Friday Thoughts - Royal Wedding, Model Life

Watch the royal wedding? I didn't either, but my wife spent the night with her sister, so that they could get up bright(?) and early and not disturb me. She did call me at 5 AM to tell me to watch the cars arriving  -  thoughtful of her! I'm glad she did call me, as the cars were varied and interesting for your carguy. I'd seen the new Bentley before (see below), but loved the old Rollers going back to 1957 (Charles' ride). Also saw a new Jag XJ, old Daimlers and a bevy of Range Rover escorts.

Kind of ironic that the British royal family should be using German cars these days, but I guess unless they crammed into Morgans, they don't have much choice.

A model life? Well maybe not, but it you're referring to my hobby, it's appropriate. The car modelling cat and I just finished a 1957 Chrysler 300C hardtop  -  those were the days. Look at those fins........

I've been making 1/24th scale car models since 1960 and have every one I've ever built on display in my basement "car room". Sitting on a shelf, I think my models look exactly like the real deal. All the chrome is foil, pain stakingly applied and trimmed to fit. Inside and outside are sprayed, logos coloured in (red/white/blue in the C's case).

Stay tuned for the very interesting pic I'll post on Monday.

Until next time........
